Singapore 5 Days Itinerary for Family Visit

Singapore 5 Days Itinerary for Family Visit

Day 1:

Arrival in Singapore 7:00 PM Singapore Changi Airport

Transfer to Hotel in Little India –day at leisure.

How to book the City Sightseeing tour this evening for day 2. Is it needs to be booked in advance or considering it to be a Monday, we can get it on the spot. Where does it starts from ?

Day 2:

Singapore half day City Tour (Duck tours)

1. Singapore Flyer

2. Marina Bay Sands – Observation Deck or Ce La Vi Restaurant

3. Merlion Icon Area

4. Ride on Bum Boat from Clarke Quay

5. Gardens by the Bay, followed by Cloud Forest, Light and Sound show at 7:45 PM.

Anything else you would recommend to add or delete from this plan ?

Day 3:

1. Singapore Zoo

2. River Safari

3. Spectra Show at 8:45 PM near MBS.

I assume Singapore Zoo needs lot of walking, is it same for other 3 attractions ? My parents have bad knees, which 2 of 4 (zoo, NS, RS & JBP) shall I prefer ?

Day 4:

Sentosa Island – Play 5 Pass - $65/-

1. S.E.A. Aquarium

2. Royal Albatross Dockside Non-Sailing Tour

3. Madam Taussads Wax Museum

4. Images of Singapore LIVE

5. Wings of Time /OR/ 4D Adventure Land: Journey 2: The Mysterious Island/OR/ Singapore Cable Car – Sentosa Line ONLY

6. Crane Dance - 8pm daily at Waterfront

Please guide how to reach Sentosa from Little India (Mustafa Center), I assume we need to go to a MRT station by Cab and then take 2 way tickets to Sentosa ?

Day 5:

1. China Town – Buddha Tooth Relic Temple

2. Bugis Street Shopping

This day we have our flights in evening, need to reach Airport at 4PM. Is there anything else to cover this day ?

Please suggest on above itinerary ?

Day 2 has too much walking especially item #5. Item #1,2 , & 5 are close to each other. Item #3 & 4 are close but not too close. Bum boat rides refer to this link

https://rivercruise.com.sg/our-jetties/

Day 3 : Zoo and River Safari. Zoo can easily eats up 2/3 daylight based on the seniors walking pace. River Safari much lesser. It would be a mad rush back to hotel, change then out to MBS? or direct to MBS? Where to settle your dinner? You would be traveling at peak hour taxi rate probably about SGD24 as a guide and may vary accordingly to traffic condition.

Day 5 take a break, give the senior some time to rest. Mustafa Center is sufficient to get your takeaways as gift to the long queue of hands sticking out back home. Chinatown is sufficient

The Duck Tour is just a drive past the attractions and it doesn't pass by National Orchid Garden. You need to buy tickets to enter the Cloud Forest dome and walk/take separate auto rider rides around the free areas of GBTB to really visit it and this is not covered by the Duck Tour.

Not feasible to catch both the Crane Dance & Winds Of Time on the same night. On paper, you'll only have half an hour to rush over to the other side of Sentosa. In reality, it's more like just 10 minutes after factoring in the crowds at both places. Takes too long to queue for the monorail (or bus) ride too.

So minxbaby, I shall do the Duck Tour and then, have to individually cover each attraction for spending more time.

Can you please suggest the sequence in which I shall cover this ? Route wise, it will help.

Thanks blitzonic: So what do you suggest is better to watch between WoT & Crane Dance ?

Also, I am planning to get Play5 Pass in Sentosa, Want to see SEA and Madam Tussad's and Albartos and Images of Singapore are by default added to this list, that covers 4 of 5. What do you recommend for 5th Credit to be used for ? Wings of Time or 4D show at Adventure Island
